This trail is on an active military installation. Members of the public will need to obtain a photo ID pass from the main gate of Fort Huachuca to access the facility and this trail. The process requires a background check and typically takes at least 30 minutes to secure a pass that's valid for 30 days.
Possible restrictions due to bear and mountain lion sightings. Some trails located on post are restricted due to live fire and military exercises.
The Huachuca Loop Trail starts off of the Huachuca Canyon Road and takes riders for a half-mile climb up to a small saddle. Be ready as this climb is a steep fire-break that will have your legs burning until you reach the top.
On the other side, the descent wastes no time shedding all the hard-won elevation in a fast road-trace that can be alarmingly loose at times. Enjoy the speed, but don't let it get away from you either as you barrel down to connect back to the Huachuca Canyon Road.
